Abstract

Flower chafers (Cetoniinae) were collected from several habitats in the Palestinian Territories (West Bank) during several field trips conducted by the team at the Palestine Museum of Natural History. Nine species in four genera (Aethiessa mesopotamica, Protaetia cuprea ignicollis, Protaetia funebris, Protaetia judith, Protaetia subpilosa, Oxythyrea cinctella, Oxythyrea noemi, Tropinota hirta suturalis, and Tropinota squalida pilosa) were recorded. This study records additional localities of flower chafers in the Palestinian Territories.
